When I first saw the inspiration piece for this week:
the first thing that popped into my head was cotton candy, because that's exactly what this is. Yeah...and just HOW am I supposed to get "cotton candy" onto a card? That clearly wasn't going to work.
Then, earlier this week, I was chatting with a dear friend and she was commenting on her son's AMAZING talent for digital design (he's only 14!). He had designed some My Little Pony type characters for his little sister and one pony had been given gossamer wings. A HA! Lightbulb! And so...
this is my version of gossamer wings. I cut out the butterflies from vellum cardstock using the Beautiful Wings Embosslit and sponged around the edges using Regal Rose. I added the pearls to cover up the adhesive (Mono Multi) as you have to be clever when adhering vellum. :)
I may just have to send my favourite princess TWO birthday cards, because I'd already chosen this one for its bright and cheery colours. However, my princess REALLY likes butterflies and since she's so special, I think TWO birthday cards are TOTALLY appropriate. Wouldn't you agree?
What do you think?
